Re: James, 94 Sovereign Auto

Hmm, just reading the Jag workshop manual it very clearly states do not re-use the 6 bolts that attach the bottom spring pan to the lower suspension arms, really? Now in lockdown so not going to be able get new bolts, so thinking at least refit for now and if must replace one at a time when I can g...

Re: Daimler XJ40 4.0

Bitter sweet? Perhaps the two things are linked? Oil leak and lack of corrosion? As with any leak, clean it up, use brake cleaner and rags. Then you can better work out where it’s coming from, and how much of leak it is. A tiny leak over many years can look horrendous. Compressor- you may want to co...

Re: Blown head gasket on my XJ81

So some awful news this week, I have a blown head gasket on my v12. Looks like one spot is between cylinders 4 and 5, with coolant gushing out. Coolant also coming out of the left side exhaust tail pipe. Until this happened, it had been running great. Smooth as silk at idle, no issues with losing c...

Re: Coronavirus

I agree there should be MOT’s. There’s MOT system in the UK is such a revenue stream for bloated government that it won't be eliminated. Larry Day 16 they will need all the revenue they can get at this rate, with the amount bailouts on the horizon. Larry, its simple. Canadians appears to be more ci...

Re: Help with brake callipers!!

It looks like the worst is still to come.
You did well to get a new calliper from a motor factor. They don't often do parts for 30 year old cars, unless they are very generic. Have you checked the one they are supplying is correct?

Re: Late-style XJ40/X300 suspension on early XJ40

There's another interesting setup on eBay at the moment which has got me thinking about possible alternatives if the rear-mounted one doesn't work. https://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/c_scale,f_auto,fl_progressive,q_80,w_320/tu9oi6iunkl9oh0f0eaq.jpg That’s the Harvey Bailey rear ARB. ...

Re: Coronavirus

I don't agree here, I think people should still get their MOT done yearly, because I know too many people here who would be driving with bold tyres, no lights or shot brakes or windscreen wipers if there wasn't any MOT. I do think though that MOT should much simpler and quicker. Just the basic thin...
